What Alabama senate race means for Hoosiers
Indiana- ABC 57 News spoke with ABC News Political Director Rick Klein about what Alabama's Senate election means for Indiana Races.
Tuesday night, Democrat Doug Jones defeated Republican Roy Moore in a special election to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Moore had to battle accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior from multiple women. The women were teenagers at the time, while Moore was in his 30's.
"This changes the Senate landscape in some fundamental ways," says ABC News Political Director Rick Klein while speaking with ABC 57 News.
Klein believes Jones' victory is a strong indicator of how the 2018 midterms elections could play out for Democrats, including Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly.
Donnelly is up for re-election in the 2018 Midterms. So far Republican Congressmen Luke Messer and Todd Rokita have the best chance of winning the nomination to challenge Donnelly.
